Abstract [en]

The concept of urban territoriality is situated at the very heart of urbanism - namely at the interface between the public and privaterealms, entangled with both circulation and habitation, between absolute and relative space2. This research seeks to understand therole of urban form as a parameter in use and appropriation of collective open space – that is relational space. For instance, empiricalevidence shows that a sense of ownership of space and appropriation through personalization (with gardens, furniture, etc) is acomponent distinct from use, facilitated by different built-form elements. However, sometimes sanctioned use and ownership are notsupported by the built form, a condition abundant in post war modernist suburbs but also in very recent residential proposals. Whetherthis is a problem depends upon how much credence is given to the ‘performative’ aspects of the built environment, given that usevalueto residents appears to suffer as a result of unclearly differentiated open space. In fact many residents with open courtyardsdon’t perceive that they have a yard at all. Strategies are needed which combine densification aims with knowledge about territorialbehaviour and how transformation strategies can support resident perceptions of what a yard is. the ‘performative’ aspects of the builtenvironment, given that use-value to residents appears to suffer as a result of unclearly differentiated open space. In fact manyresidents with open yards don’t perceive that they have a yard at all. Whether this is a problem depends upon how much credence isgiven to performative effects of urban form.
